Adventurous Journey - OSAT Weather or Not Blog Hop

 Welcome to Corner of Plaid and Paisley where the sun has finally made an appearance and we are loving it!!  I made a two projects using the Adventurous Journey stamp set- which unfortunately is no longer available since it sold out once they put it on the Last Chance List.

I am participating in the One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop and this month's theme is Weather or Not.

You will see the links to the other talented bloggers participating in this hop at the end of my post.

We normally make 2 projects for this hop, so I made a card and a little sign for the all the kayak enthusiasts here on the little lake I live on.  I love this time of the year when the sun is finally shinning around here and things are warming up - people have started to pull out their kayaks and take an early ride while the lake is still quiet.  Another month the lake will be in full swing and busy with all sorts of boat activity.
For my card I partnered the Adventurous Journey stamp set with the Rays of Light background stamp for the sun shining off the water.

The water was done with my Blending Blending Brushes and then sprinkled a bit of water on the paper and dabbed it off with a paper towel to get some spotted effects.  I colored my kayaker with Stampin' Blends and fussy cut him (or her) out with my Paper Snips.

The sentiment is from the Nested Birds stamp and cut out with a stitched oval from the Mini Pocket Envelope die set. 

A view from my kayak!!

My sign is made on a wood block that I purchased at a craft outlet for 50 cents and was already painted white - so sorry - I don't know what kind of paint it was.
Again I used Balmy Blue ink and my Blending Brushes to make the background a light blue, stamped, colored and fussy cut the kayaker out.  I stamped the water circles on with Balmy Blue ink.

The letters are cut out with the Alphabet A La Mode dies that are carrying over to the new catalog.
The heart in the middle is from the Sentiments Silhouettes die set.
These are all just glued down with liquid adhesive.

I hope you enjoyed these projects!  Now it is on to see what everyone else has made for this hop!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
